Sunday Sketches - Water Violence

This is my Sunday Sketch for this week.  It corresponds to a post I wrote yesterday in my other blog, Abigails Attic.

Sophia from BlueChairDiary, hosts the Sunday Sketches and many talented artists participate.  Most of them are preliminary sketches of ideas for later projects, but my sketches are finished works of art, since I do not use other mediums--just pencil and charcoal pencil.  Hope you enjoy my submission for today.  Please do visit the other artists' blogs to see what they are working on!  Thanks!

Very cool sketch, you did a great job of capturing a splash in water, hard to do.

I love your approach to SS - and it's OK if it's just pencil or charcoal. :) I have charcoal pencils but not used the Yet They scare me. hahahaha :)
